Black Ops 2 TranZit Zombies Mode Buildable Items List, Where to Find Parts

One of the many improvements made by the team at Treyarch to Black Ops 2′s Zombies Mode are the new “buildable” items that players can assemble to help them easier progress to later rounds. The buildables are constructed by collecting certain parts from around the different areas of TranZit – the new “open world” Zombies mode map.

Below is a list of all of Black Ops 2′s TranZit Zombies mode buildable items, the┬áparts you need to build them, and where to find the parts.

  • The Turbine (first bus stop)(portable power) – Fan Blade on seats. – Mannequin Torso leaning against sign. – Tail Fin near lockers
  • Zombie Shield (2nd bus stop)(Riot shield like) – Car door found in garage – Dolly found in diner
  • Machine Gun Turret (3rd bus stop) – Machine gun found in either house or barn – Ammo Pouch found in living room or kitchen of house – Lawnmower found around sides of house
  • Electric Trap (4th bus stop) – TV tube found on wondows up stairs from bench. – Car battery found on barrels around the same area – Tesla Ball assembly found usually beside the Tombstone Soda
  • Thrustodyne Aeronautics Model 23 (5th bus stop) – Jet engine found in tunnel between bus stops 1 & 2 – Wire found in the same area as the Electric Trap parts – Headlight found in cabin where the Bowie Knife is between bus stops 4 & 5 – Handle found in WaW map sectioin on right side of the road between bus stops 3 & 4
  • Navcard Usage Machine (under pylon in corn maze on left side of road between bus stops 3 & 4) (Must play on original difficulty not easy) – Purple Rock in hole beside mystery box location at bus stop 1 – Control Panel #1 in WaW map part in corn maze on right side of road between bus stops 3 & 4 – Wooden Board under the stairs by the work bench at bus stop 4 – Control Panel #2 leaning against dumpster beside mystery box location at bus stop 5

        you dont get into that room. in area 5 where the bank is, you blow up the safe doors with a grenade. there is the same electrical symbol as the door next to the generator. but you do need to go to the generator and place the portable generator at that door you were talking about. then once you have done that the door at the bank will open to an area like the black ops map five (the science are where the gas zombies appear) then in the room you will have to find parts to make the pack a punch :3 have fun

      In order to access nacht der untoten in the cornfield area is tricky. First you jump off of the bus in the corn field by the cars. there is a white car. next to the car is a path in the corn. head down that path and in the first turn there is a little offshoot path in the corn. this will lead you to nacht der untoten. That is where the part you need is.

      There’re set locations were it will spawn in the game. An one will spawn every time you play Tranzit. However, there’s no way of knowing were its going too spawn each time; as its random.

      I can say that the bonus room were you start on round one usually has a piece. The shed at the second stop also may carry a piece. Another shed at the farm also may carry another piece. In town, the room that has the Semtex grenades may also carry a piece of the bus.

      The turbine is needed too access every piece!!!

    For those who don’t know. The hatch door that’s used inside of the bus can also be used inside the dinner so you can get onto the roof. You’ll find a pair of knuckles for $6000 cash up there. These Knuckles are very powerful and are much stronger then the Bowie Knife. Zombies below round 12 will die with one melee attack. And zombies below round 22 will die with only two melee attacks. The Knuckles can be used with the Ballistic Knifes!! Also, if you kill a burning zombie with the Knuckles, they WILL NOT explode in your face. Instead, the knuckles will electrocute your foe. Everyone can buy this item. However, it is not recommended too camp up there. The zombies can jump up form the sides!!

    Warning: IF YOU BUY THE KNUCKLES THEN THE BOWIE KNIFE, IT WILL REPLACE THE KNUCKLES!! AND VISE VERSE!!

    Warning: IF YOU USE THE HATCH ON THE BUS, YOU CANNOT REACH THE KNUCKLES!! AND VISE VERSE!!

    There are wormholes that can be activated underneath each of the green light poles by bringing one of those clawed creatures underneath it while the power is on or while having a turbine running next to the light pole. Doing so will open the wormhole which will remain there until you use it and can be activated as many times as you wish. You jump into the wormhole and will be teleported to other wormholes throughout the map.

      At the first bus stop (spawn) there are 3 parts that make a turbine, when you place this down in front of the things that require electricity, it generates it opening the doors or turning on whatever you want to use it for.

      to escape the electric zombie attack is to run around in circles around the zombie when it goes into human formation then go behind it and keep on stabing it and keep doing it until its dead and if you dont want it to come at all TURN OF THE POWER at the power station!!! thats all i know about them so i hope it helps keep you and your fellow survivors ALIVE!!!!

      The meteor stone is one of the parts used to build something under the electrical tower. The radio tower is in one I the cornfields but is on the left( if your on the bus it’s gonna be after the cornfield on the right) then you follow the path until you end up under the tower.

      The handle is between the power station and the town (imo its really stops 4&5 counting the bus station as #1 and the town #5) once at the power station and you turn the power on, go through the area where you build the electric trap and jump down to where the bus stops. From there take a right and run out in the fog. You will eventually see a green light where you make the portals, if you stand underneath it with the pole to your back you can just barely see some flames in the distance, run forward (maybe have to strafe right a bit) and you will come to a cabin and your part is in there. I seem to find it on the bed springs mostly.

      After you get the hatch door bus part you can either choose to build it onto the bus as an escape in case your bus gets swamped by zombies, or you can build the hatch onto the roof in the diner allowing you to get the Galavanknuckles for 6ooo points, it insta kills zombies up untill round 13 and is extremely usefull against the electric zombie, killing him in 3-4 hits

    Does anyone know where the navcards are? Found one on the side of the bus station, but I hear there are 4 in total. I built the navcard unit, but it says wrong navcard. So where are the others and what do you do with all of them?

    Like or Dislike: Thumb up 1 Thumb down 1

  35. Kyle says:

    Alright about the navcards and the navcard unit, they are both used to get the tower of babble thropy but really you don’t need the an cards bc none of them will work. In order to do the tower of babble you first need to turn on the power. If you don’t know how I’ll tell you lol.
    First you need to get to the power station (or the Core which is its official name) if you leave from the bus station it’s the thrid stop. Get off the bus and run to the only door there buy it open for 750. To turn the power on you need 3 parts. The Breaker, The Handle, and The Hand. Each of these can be found in the Core or white room (I suggest looking for the hand first inbetween rounds or have someone hold a non-crawler zombie off for you) bc when you get zombies in there and their body parts are flying all over the place….it then becomes a b***h. Once you get the power turned on and your back on the bus start looking for the parts to the Thrustodyne Aeronautics Model 23 (the locations that were posted above are the most accurate but please remember that each part doesn’t have an exact location that it will spawn but normally it’s around the same area (with the exception of the bus parts which ill get to those later) once you find all 4 parts head to the town and build it are the bench in the bar. Now your on to step 3 building the Navcard Usage Machine ok this makes this easy the parts for the Navcard Usage Machine will always be in the same place so read the above for their locations. Once you have all the parts it’s then time to head for the power tower(you’ll see it in the sky just look) its right across from the first zombie map part of the map (official name is The Prototype) between bus stops 3 and 4. Now once you have that built its then time to use that Thrustodyne Aeronautics Model 23 that you made. Ok so have the Thrustodyne Aeronautics Model 23 in hand and look at the Novacard Usage Machine you’ll see the stone you found at the bus station sitting on the left side for the bench on a radio thing. Fire the Thrustodyne Aeronautics Model 23 at it until you see flames spawn up all around the tower. Now to kill zombies…simple enough, remain under the tower and kill the zombies until you hear the voices. Then you’ll need to cut down the amount of power…..this part it’s tricky. Ok you need all 4 players to have EMP grenades you’ll each need to get to a light pole( the ones in green) you can do this 1 of2 ways, the easiest way to to have each player teleport until they are each at a different light (to teleport just stand under on of the green lights walk a very little ways away from it turn around and wait for on of the goblin things to jump on your head then run it back under the light, it will dig down and then just jump in to the hole once it’s lite up, PLZ NOTE this can only be done with the power on or with a turbine next to the light) or you can ride the bus to each light. Now that everyone is at a light, at the same time throw an EMP at the light then you’ll have the achievement…oh and, if your close enough, once you’ve done that run back to the power tower and a drop will be there, the drop has a limited time on it so get it quick. The drop will cycle so pick which one you want.

    Now as promised the bus parts locations, there are 4 locations that a part can spawn but there’s only 3 parts so be sure to look in each location.

    Spawn Point 1: Bus Station – in the room you spawn in to the right of the build bench (you need to build the turbine In order to open the door.

    Spawn Point 2: The Diner – as soon as you hop off the bus run to the building on the far left, you’ll need a turbine to open the door

    Spawn Point 3: The Farm – as soon as you hop off the bus open the front gate and run straight go around the car/truck/thing (I don’t remember exactly what it is lol) and open the door with the turbine

    Spawn Point 4: The Town – as soon as you hop off the bus buy the door to the bank walk through it and cut left run through the front door of the bank cut right across the street the once your on the other side of the street cut left and just follow the side of the building until you see a small door across the street from the mystery box location that’s behind the fence on the street. Open the door with the turbine

    Side Note: putting all 3 parts on the bus is an achievement

    Well thx for reading and I hope it helps :)

    • Galva knuckles are amazing, up until round 14 you can 1 hit kill zombies for 130 points then you just need to hit them with [round number] – 14 bullets and you can hit them with galvas to kill :)

      I’d use EMP for killing Advogadro though purely to avoid physical contact. He spawns automatically at about round 14.
